Festive Fall Favorite • Still $2.99!
At Trader Joe's, there are products we bring in at certain times of the year that we don't have the rest of the year (see Spiced Cider). One of the favorites is Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix, a simple, straightforward baking mix that delivers excellent results with very little effort. It's become such a favorite, in fact, that we know people who buy cases of it when it arrives each fall, hoping to make it last until the following autumn, when it makes its annual return.
Each box, combined with your eggs, oil and water, makes a loaf of moist and fluffy, lightly spiced pumpkin bread or a dozen standard-sized muffins. One of our favorite things about homemade pumpkin bread is the way the subtle flavor of the pumpkin is perfectly complemented by the zesty additions of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Our mix has all these things, and we've done all the mixing and measuring for you. If you find yourself feeling adventurous, add chopped nuts, dried fruit, or shredded carrots or zucchini for an extra splash of color and texture. You can even combine it with our Truffle Brownie Mix to make Pumpkin Swirl Brownies!
Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix contains no artificial colors or flavors and no preservatives, and it's Kosher certified. We're selling each 17.5 ounce box for $2.99, same as it was way back in 2008...
